Music mogul believes Britain’s Got Talent winner has a great future ahead

Simon Cowell predicts George Sampson will be raking in the money over the next 12 months.

The 15-year-old became an overnight star after winning ITV show Britains Got Talent in May 2008.

Simon has capitalised on George‘s rise to fame by rushing out a DVD documentary and double A-side single.

I am estimating George Sampson‘s earnings will hit at least £250,000 to £300,000 in the first year, he says.

But Simon, 49, who is also a judge on The X Factor, insists he doesnt exploit any of his acts.

It is not slave labour, he tells the Daily Mail. I am very fair in business. I always have been. I pride myself on being fair.’
